China ramps up energy transition ambition with 20% renewables target for 2025

The Chinese government has laid out its latest strategy for renewables as part of the country’s current five-year (2021-2025) economic development period, with demand for renewable energy expected to reach 1 billion tonnes per annum of coal equivalent by 2025.

The plans were mapped out by powerful economic decision-making body the National Development & Reform Commission (NDRC), as part of China’s stated objective of achieving peak carbon emissions by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060.

The strategy will require China to gradually replace fossil fuel energy from renewable sources such as wind, solar and hydrogen produced without emissions.
